Hi Jason, Yes this is going to be a public facing application with 3 level heirarchy, and maybe around 100 tiny companies(3-4 employees) using it.
App is going to be on a Hosted Server. DB session mgmt would be a bit slower, is it? I have thought about cross site forgery and session hijacking, but the more I think about it, I realize the lesser I know about it all :( So thought this would be the best place to start.
